Thank you Bernd!
 What you have told me then just confirms what i already thought was going on!  Thank you!
 I want to also say keep up the excellent work!  I have been using this stuff every day for years now but i do not often let others know what i am doing.  So I want you and the other Gforth developers to know that you all are doing great stuff in my mind!  Please keep it up!  
 I may decide to not do much testing of the 0.7.9 Gforth but instead fall back to maybe 0.7.3.  I us this stuff in some production type places.  I have been using socket.fs and script.fs and string.fs.  So to that end i may just keep using the versions of those pieces of code that i was using with the exception of string.fs as it seems to already be in version 0.7.0.  The first problems i was having was finding the source code because .fpath did not have the correct locations for them on my first experiences with raspbian wheezy debian.  This seems to be changed now and .fpath seems to be pointing to the correct locations.  Note i have been installing gforth via apt-get install gforth.  I have also been learning linux so using things like tar balls and dpkg stuff is getting easier for me.  Bernd I noticed you have mentioned a post of mine from the Raspberry pi forums about installing a newer version of gforth ( ver 0.7.2) so if that post needs changing let me know.  It is the post under the name harrypower.  That is my other name on many forms.  Anyways keep going Forth!

Fine, welcome as beta tester - please report bugs and feature requests.

Yes, it's just an omission. I've added that (and another file that should be
installed and packaged) to

Some stuff requires dependent libraries, and maybe also is obsolete (like
libffi.fs and ffcall.fs).
